I will try anyway and hope it is enough. In the mean time I will try to schedule the enema, things tend to book out months in advance out here. I have time, want all the chemo or most anyway out of my system. According to what I read, both oxal and xeloda can slow down healing.

I definitely believe that. My neuropathy remains after a month after finishing. I'd say that it hasn't been declining. The tingling is worst in the toes and there's some in the fingers.

Ditto, I have to wear slippers in house, shoes outside all the time. My mouth and throat are super sensitive too, feel like tin.
